By focusing on your breath as you do these exercises (which mirror the movements found in nature), you connect to a profound sense of relaxation and healing power.
Ease the chronic effects of a busy life with the gentle, flowing movements of Qi Gong. Lee Holden guides you through a serene, relaxing workout that transforms stress into a healthy source of energy!
Some exercises are performed standing, while others are done seated or lying down.
Qi Gong switches the nervous system from the stress-related ‘fight or flight’ mode to the restorative healing mode of the parasympathetic branch. EEG shows that, in people practicing Qi Gong, the cerebral cortex enters a state of calm that few people experience, even in sleep.
Really enjoyed this! My first experience with Lee Holden and I find him calm and soothing. The scenery is beautiful but there's nothing gimmicky about the workout, zero bells and whistles. At 28 minutes (not counting the partner segment) this is a nice one to do whenever you can fit it in. The Standing portion is the longest at 18 min, the seated is 5 minutes and finally the floor portion is 4. I don't have the energy to even do yoga sometimes, or the concentration for Tai Chi. With this I was able to let go and just be.
